I've just started it, but I did read the introduction--or at least a bit of it, before the intro decided to give a detailed summary of the book. I decided I'll just jump right in.

Edit:
The intro to this story seemed to give the entire plot, which was

If there's anything I adored about this book is exactly where the author chose to end it. I get annoyed by stories where there are two possible endings--and both will annoy me (either "okay, this is worked out too well and is unrealistic" or "Well, t ...more

This book was often intense, sometimes a little confusing, but in general a very good book. However, I feel like it ended about 100 pages too soon. The story, as a novel, is finished, but I'm the curious type, and I had many unanswered questions abou ...more

Reading this book was like taking a walk down memory lane. While the book was entirely through Hrbek's eyes, and I certainly got more insight than I had when I was a little girl listening to games, it brought back memories. The writing is a very casu ...more

This book danced from character to character, as all the characters were moderately connected simply by living in the same town when a disaster occurs. I'll admit sometimes I had trouble piecing together exactly what each person was doing from time t ...more

This book isn't for everyone. I've talked to other people who complained that they wanted to know what happened and why. The reality of this book isn't what happened, but rather how people reacted to it. I think Ursu did an excellent job of dealing w ...more

This book was fun, witty, and amusing. Charlotte and Zee go off on adventures that are so bizarre and different from the normal fantasy, because rather than futuristic, they're going into the past--far past! Some of Ursu's little bits and plots are p ...more
